Description: Handcrafted for Five Generations Since 1870. Louis and Regina Graeter started handcrafting Graeter's Ice Cream in 1870. Today, generations later, we proudly remain a family owned and operated company. This is made possible thanks to you, our legion of loyal fans. For a century and a half, Graeter's has remained steadfast in our commitment to making ice cream not the easy way, but rather, the only way it should be: by hand, with real cream, sugar and eggs, in 2 gallon French Pots one batch at a time.

“My favorite ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I am a very picky about my ice cream growing up in Milwaukee and Cincinnati where ice cream is truly an art form. Graeter's has been featured on Oprah. It is expensive ice cream but well worth the price. The ice cream is hand dipped -- no air! Anything chocolate chip is AMAZING. Chunks of chocolate await you in every bite. Black Raspberry Chip is amazing.

“Great Graeter's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Nothing greater than Graeter's for ice cream. A long standing home-town institution, this is the place to go for the famous black raspberry ice cream filled with chunks ( not chips!) of dark chocolate. Friendly staff is always willing to give you a taste of a flavour if you are undecided. Tables on one side allow you to sit comfortably while you enjoy a bowl or cone. Chocolates and other sweets can be purchased by the pound. My own favourite treat is toffee chip swimming in a pool of dark chocolate sauce. Totally awesome!

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is an ice cream place that has that old school ice cream feel. The ice cream is still hand dipped into their cartons and a great ice cream eating atmosphere.
